    Check the menu on the PS3, I believe you will find a setting in the menu to turn on the HDMI output.

You will have to connect it to the TV using the composite cable to change the settings. This is the cable with yellow red and white connectors. Connect it to one of the composite inputs on the TV. You should be able to leave to HDMI connected at the same time so that once you make the change, you can change to the HDMI input and see if it works.

Which cables do I use to connect Philips HTL5140 soundbar to my Panasonic LCD TV (37LZD800). Later I want the sound bar for my new Samsung 4K TV. Thanks.


Use the optical cord. And connect it to the optical connection behind the TV. You will see a red glowing light at the connection on the TV. Go this route, this connection will work for all your TV viewing, HDMI 1, HDMI 2, HDMI 3, DVR, DVD, Satellite, cable or air, and if you still have a VHS. Thanks for asking me, Matt of Martins TV Repair.

HMDI 1 and 3 do not work (why) ?


Since you did not mention HDMI 2, I assume you have that connected to something else, and that is working properly. The following procedure is based on that assumption.

First, turn off everything connected to the set, and the TV itself. Disconnect the HDMI cable from whatever is going to HDMI 2 (leave the TV end alone for now) and connect it to the PS3. If the PS3 shows up on the TV, the problem is most likely a bad cable. To verify, turn off the PS3 and the TV, then move the known good HDMI cable to either HDMI 1 or 3. If the PS3 works on those also, the HDMI cable you had originally connected to the PS3 is defective. I know there are some bad ones out there; there is at least one lot with a right-angle connector on one end and a straight connector on the other that has a very high failure rate.

If the PS3 does not work with a known good cable to HDMI 2, then the PS3 has a problem. Try using a component (RGB) or composite (yellow end) connection to narrow down what the issue is.

If HDMI 1 and 3 do not work with a known good cable or any input source (DVR or cable box), then the HDMI switching circuit inside the TV is defective. Since the set is "new" that would be a warranty issue.

How come when I hook up our ps3 to it in the hdmi cable it's fuzzy what is wrong/how can I fix it?


You have to find out what is causing the problem, The TV, The PS3 or the cable. Most likely its a bad connection, or incorrect settings less likely is a bad digital board in your TV.
Connect the PS3 to another TV, if the issue is gone the problum is with your TV, first I would try all the resoultion options in the TV menu and the PS3, if that does not work I would still try another HDMI cable if it still is not working connect another HDMI device to the TV if it also is not working the problem is with your TV

Samsung lcd ln46a550pf3 no sound from hdtv reciever


ok your tv does not come with the very best sound, you have to get a receiver 7.1 or you can use the optical wire , that's if the system you are using has that option.
